In order to stop any future attempts by the Florida Legislature to allow near-beach oil drilling on our coasts, we have formed a coalition to place the ban on the November 2012 ballot.
We will need approximately 700,000 verified petitions and around $70,000 for the signature verification process. We have until February of 2012 to hand in all of our signatures. The Petition Form is attached below.
Please click here to print the form and mail it in. Leave the "paid petition circulator" section blank.
1) All petitions must be from registered Florida voters. If you are a student, use the address where you are registered to vote.
2) Forms must be filled out completely and sent in to the address at the bottom of the form.
3) While you may enter either your Voter Registration Number or Date of Birth, using the Voter Registration Number will speed the processing by the Supervisor of Elections offices.
4) Forms should not be altered in any way. Any changes to the form, including scribbling, writing not included on the original form, web URLs, stamps, etc. will cause the petition to be rejected by the Supervisor of Elections.
Become a member of Save Our Shores! Florida and support our efforts to ban drilling off Florida's coasts.
